Tough, Stylish Granite: Top Transformation For A Basement Wet Bar


When you decide to upgrade your basement to a comfortable space for relaxation and entertaining, there are multiple design decisions you'll have to make. It may have been used for storage, for a kids playroom, or left mostly vacant until you had the chance to renovate. But now you can transform the whole area into a comfortable place for recreation. Installing a wet bar as a feature of the upgraded basement is a classic move that gives it a fun, grown-up ambiance.

Go simple or go fancy with your wet bar design. But whichever layout you decide on, choose handsome, durable materials and finishes for this part of the basement makeover. Flooring, cabinets, the sink and fixtures, and the lighting are all important components of the design. But it's the countertop that pulls the individual elements together for a coherent, stylish look.

Quartz countertops are the ideal choice for just about any wet bar design you come up with for your basement renovation. Here's why:

  • Quartz comes in a variety of colors and patterns suitable for styles ranging from light and airy to bold and formal. Off-white, light gray, beige and tan are popular, bright countertop colors in a basement installation where there's little natural light. For a more traditional look, consider darker countertops with a marbled pattern.
  • Quartz is a remarkably durable countertop material. It's engineered – not natural stone – so its tough enough to resist scratches, dings, and stains. If your parties get rowdy or if there are accidental spills, you won't have to worry much about repairing the damage before your wet bar looks great again.
  • Quartz countertops are available in a wide range of pre-cut sizes that fit most standard cabinet and sink sizes. If you're dealing with unusual measurements or awkward spacing, the countertop can also be custom cut for a nice, tidy fit.

Plan to work with an experienced installer. Quartz is heavy and best handled by folks who know how to maneuver it down the stairs and into place. The installer will also be able to ensure that the countertop is properly leveled and set tight against the vertical and horizontal surfaces so there are no gaps. This attention to detail will prevent extra cleaning, maintenance and possible adjustments over the years. All that's left for you to do is enjoy the benefits of having your own bar, lounge and recreational space in the comfort of your own transformed basement.

Making Your Garden More Beautiful

About a year ago, it occurred to me that my yard needed a little bit of work. The weeds were growing quickly, the flowerbeds were unkempt, and some of the trees had grown out of control. In addition to making my yard look terrible, I was also concerned about the threat of falling branches, which is why I started focusing more seriously on making my garden more beautiful. I hired a team of professional landscapers to come out and make a few changes, and it was really incredible to see the difference that they were able to make. This blog is all about making your garden lush and beautiful.
